At All Wheels, we continuously strive to ensure to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technological advancements and delivering new innovations to our clients. Our new ‘green vehicle’ the Enviro 2 Pallet Refrigerated Truck is just one of the ways we’re working hard to be more environmentally responsible and support our clients to do the same. Diesel fuel is the norm in most light commercial vehicles, but there are other options available which are now receiving more and more attention because of rising fuel prices and environmental concerns.
What is a green vehicle?
With emissions being high on the agenda across all industries in Australia who take environmental responsibility seriously, we want to ensure we lead the commercial rental market when it comes to efficient low carbon emissions rental options.
All new vehicles in Australia must meet minimum emission requirements, but green vehicles exceed the minimum threshold by significantly cutting exhaust emissions. To do this, they use either electric or hybrid drive systems.
The Benefits of Our Green Vehicle
1. Convenient to Run
Our green vehicles run off a hybrid engine which means they use both diesel and electric engines. Unlike electric vehicles, the hybrid does not need to be plugged in to recharge the battery as the diesel engine charges the batteries.
2. Fuel Savings
Hybrid electric engines are particularly effective for trucks driving in stop start conditions, for example in city traffic or when making a large number of small deliveries. They run on either the diesel or electric engine, and the on-board computer switches between the two engines to maximise efficiency. When the engine is idle or cruising it is running on electric but when the vehicle requires additional power output under load, the diesel engine will take over.
3. Environmental Responsibility
Our green vehicles have low exhaust emissions reducing the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere.Emissions are a major contributor to poor air quality in cities. By driving a low emissions vehicle, you won’t be contributing as heavily to the amount of smog. Not only that, hybrid engines are quieter than standard diesel engines overall, so reduce the amount of road noise in our cities.
4. A Positive Brand Message
By striving to do your bit and seeking out green vehicles to support your fleet in daily business activities, you are creating a positive story for your business and your brand. Not only does this reflect well on you in the eyes of your customer-base you are also helping to educate Australians on their low emissions options and what you’re doing to make a contribution.
5. Go Green Without the Costs
Whilst green vehicles are a great option for businesses in a number of ways, they can also be more expensive to purchase and maintain. By utilising the All Wheels Fleet, you reap the benefits of lower fuel costs as well as the positive environmental impact with less risk to your business. A win win!
We have plans to continue to grow our green fleet and increase the vehicle numbers and sizes over the coming months.
